“I aim to provide the highest standards of care. Private consultations are offered at Thornbury and my service is patient centred with consultation times offered conveniently both in and outside of normal working hours. I offer a personal and individual service with 30 minute consultation times to enable all patient’s concerns and worries to be addressed. Reassuring patients as quickly as possible about the underling nature of their problems is a key goal of my service. This approach leads to extremely high levels of patient satisfaction”.
